Selection of Punj Piyaare for Amrit Ceremony

I have been having this thought for sometime now I don’t know if I would be able to express my feelings exactly in English but I will try. My question or doubt is. Is it ok to select any five Amritdhari Sikhs for the role of Panj Piyaares in an Amrit Ceremony or One needs to take care while doing so? I feel that the Panj Piyaare who are selected to Baptize a person or a group of people have a bearing on the energy force of the Amrit, Rehats and the overall progress made by the soul as a Khalsa. Because if the Conduct of the Beloved Five (Panj Piyaare) as a Human and A Khalsa is not up to the standards set by Siri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. What value or power would they instill in the person being baptized? I would like to invite a discussion on this matter in order to clear my doubt if it’s true or not for my own benefit and the benefit of others like me.

  1. Ji, it is the common belief of Sikhs that Guru Gobind Singh is represented in the five Sikhs and his will comes through. As far as a "a bearing on the energy force of the Amrit," I couldn't comment having taken Amrit only once :-) However there is a bearing on the rehit. Certain Jethas follow different rehits. The basics are the same, but there are additional requirements/restrictions. This is the will of Guru Gobind Singh as well.
    Receiving Amrit is totally in the will of WaheGuru. We think that we choose the time and place (that's what I thought before hand), but later we realize we were chosen. The 'main stream' Sikhs at Akal Takht or most Gurdwaray will give a 'standard' rehit from the Akal Takht/SGPC.
    Your journey is inspiring.
    WaheGuru Ji Ka Khalsa, WaheGuru Ji Ki Fateh!
